Latest to First First to Latest. I loved it when I reread it before books 2 and 3 came out, too. Some of the writing was a little repetitive, but I was able t Felicia made me do it. While I felt like Alex’s friends were more show then real, I look forward to getting to know them all more.
So Alex finds herself in the middle of a serial killer investigation which goes very wrong and cuts too close to home The world kind of reminds me of a simpler version of the Dante Valentine series [which I had to quit a few books in because of horrible love interests] and her whole relationship with Death is a bit like the Niki Slobodian series [which took awhile to warm up but I absolutely loved by the end, so I’m hoping it takes more after that series as I continue it]. Her ability is an embarrassment to her family, and she gets shipped off to boarding school when it becomes clear there is no hiding her magic–if she doesn’t deliberately use her gift, it will latch on random dead things of its own volition.
This one came highly rated by friends and after seeing it constantly mentioned I decided it must be worth a try. But, gotta keep with the times and all that.

She raises shades, works with ghosts, and is dating Death himself. Misunderstanding clues elongated the story. Nekros Aled United States. He’s been popping in and out of Alex’s life since she was little, and although she doesn’t know much about him, they’re friends.
Some people liked it, others hated it. She’s also not the sharpest knife in the drawer and she’s a doormat. Read it Forward Read it first. Maybe I just like the idea of Alex sticking to Prince Charming, her dog and not having too many relationships. She also gets extremely cold, and this chill lasts for a long time. Unfortunately, this book let me down on multiple levels. You have to admire that sand.
There is so much wrong here. I winced over some of her life choices–the one night stands being chief among them–but that never kept me from liking her. The idea of him as a potential love interest just spells trouble in my mind, but it would be awesome to see it work out.
Again, I say, hmm. Alex Craft 6 books. No, that’s not me finally going over the edge and taking up necrophilia, bh me talking about the jeans-clad, dangerous and amusing Grim Reaper that is always looking over Alex’s shoulder.
The writing is solid, the pace a bit slow at times, the story is reminiscent of other stories in the UF genre. And, speaking alec Menage’s, there is a small triangle in this book, but it barely hits the radar.
She is also a consultant for the police. But I can’t get behind a guy that says ‘ For a woman with your reputation, you’re incredibly difficult to get into bed ,’ like she owes him something. When she’s raising a “shade” involved in a high-profile murder, it attacks her, and then someone makes an attempt on her life. Gimme something new and fresh, death.
The genre’s taken me all over the place in the last few months: Withoutabox Submit to Film Festivals. Yeah, yeah, I know that this is fiction and gravve author actually makes this up, but I want to lose myself in the story. The pricr yet distinctive opener, followed by some intriguing action Death saved a life -why, and is that allowed? As the flat story progressedit felt increasingly like this: View all 11 comments. It really says something when the highlights of a book can be summed up in only a couple of lines.
Why is it Humans First Party supporters hate witches, but sneak in illusion charms for an instant face-lift or boob job? The secondary characters are slow-played, added to the main character’s life in a believable way, just a nice mixture that was fun.
Still, I will read the next book to see if she does get better and to see if I can stay with the series instead of putting it in my book bag. And to the author. Personally, Kalauna liked Falin, the hot cop but that’s not all he is. Kalayna draws her ideas from the world around her, her studies into ancient mythologies, and her obsession with classic folklore.
Open Preview See a Problem? Meet Alex Craft, a grave witch, someone who not only can speak to the dead, but bridge the chasm between life and death as well.
Alex Craft Series
Do you know what this means?! Magic, spells, and charms are part of every day life, so much so that everyone–even members of the Humans First party–wears them. It’s nice to have a heroine that doesn’t have an effortless, unending well of power to tap. I’m sensing a potential love triangle on the horizon but I actually don’t mind Falin and I really hope to see more of Death in the next book, so even that isn’t really a setback here.
But anyway, I watched Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol this weekend so I had my ratio of silly ideas bullshit for this week.
